Almost black and quite opaque, this is a big red wine. It has a wonderful weight and a velvety mouth. The nose is ripe plum and black currants, slight hint anise tickles the palate. This wine is very big and rich, the black fruit and spice layers the mouth around a firm tannin frame. It has enough freshness to complete with a long, opulent finish. Pair with BBQ pork ribs, pomegranate marinated lamb or venison. Delicious!
